Start by explaining how your topic meshes with your table and what you want to do.

That is, you can't write an app if you don't know what you want it to perform.

Does your table have a field to say what type of link it is?

You can try something like this...

<? php
.
.
.
$i = 0;
while($table[$i]) {
    if(preg_match('/@/', $table[$i]) {
        // do email process 

    } else if (preg_match('/http:\/\//', $table[$i]) {
        // do url process

    } else {
        throw new exception ('Unrecognized table entry');
    }
    $i++;
}
